Cool! I did the same, but with an old bike tire which I cut open and wrapped around it like tape. Just put some real duct tape or electric tape on both extremities and that's it!


I wonder how this would look with old bar tape instead of a hose...


@ Scott

Depends on how good the bar tape looks. Personally I think the hose is a better idea as it won't retain moisture as readily as most bar tapes. The lock is steel after all.


Presumably this is done with the original vinyl-dip coating gone. It would seem to be impossible to slip the hose on otherwise.
